Taguig City’s “Love Caravan” – a mobile health center with integrated medical, dental, and social services – arrived at Barangay West Rembo on Saturday, October 7, to deliver health services to residents.
In a Sunday social media post, the Taguig City government said the mobile health center with integrated services attended to about 2,000 West Rembo residents during its visit.
The caravan would make the rounds in other EMBO barangays in the coming weeks. The schedules of the Taguig Love Caravan are posted regularly on the I Love Taguig Facebook page.
The Love Caravan offers a wide range of free medical services, including consultations, OB-Gyne services for pregnant women and those with gynecological problems, pharmacy services, and diagnostics and laboratory services such as CBC, urinalysis, Random Blood Sugar (RBS), blood typing, Chest X-ray, ECG, and ultrasound.
Additionally, the mobile health center provides vital healthcare services such as free maintenance medicines and flu quadrivalent vaccinations for senior citizens, pregnant women, individuals with comorbidities, and healthcare workers. HPV vaccines are also available for ages 9 to 14.
For dental care, residents have access to tooth extraction and pharmacy services. Furthermore, nutrition services are being offered featuring cooking demonstrations of healthy meals and distribution of vegetables and other essential ingredients.
The Love Caravan also facilitates the registration and distribution of IDs for Persons with Disabilities through the Persons with Disabilities Affairs Office (PDAO) and for Senior Citizens through the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA).
The City Social Welfare and Development (CSWDO) gives out wheelchairs, crutches, and burial assistance, and helps with the registration with PhilHealth ng Masa.
The Love Caravan also accepts applications under the L.A.N.I. Cares Program which provides health and other support to the poor, marginalized, and vulnerable sectors of the city. — DVM, GMA Integrated News
